A reporter with Liberty Television, Aminu Nurudeen, who allegedly released a video of Ibrahim Idris, Inspector-General of Police, struggling to deliver a speech at an event has gone into hiding.
According to Saturday PUNCH, Nurudeen went into hiding after he was invited by Musa Magaji Majiya, spokesman of the Kano police command.
The journalist is said to have disobeyed an order by releasing the embarrassing video clip. It was learnt that the Kano police command had instructed journalists not to release the clip.
The IGP, who spoke at the inauguration of the Police Technical Intelligence Unit in Kano state on Monday, was heard in the video clip saying:
“I mean, transmission, I mean effort, that the transmission cooperation to transmission, I mean transmission to have effect, ehm, apprehend, I mean, apprehensive towards the recommendation, recommended formation effective and effect, I mean, apprehensive at the transmission of…and transmission and transmission for the effective in the police command.”
The clip has since trended online and Nigerians have mocked the police boss for the blunder.
However, the police have said that the video was doctored.
